GW19 Differentials: Pogba spark to revive Man Utd

The Scout 23 Dec 2019

Fit-again midfielder among The Scout's four Differentials for Gameweek 19 ahead of Thursday's deadline

The fit-again Paul Pogba (£8.4m) offers Fantasy Premier League managers a tempting, big-hitting option for Gameweek 19.

The Manchester United midfielder's second-half appearance at Watford was his first since Matchweek 7.

Despite featuring for just 26 minutes, the Frenchman still impressed. His total of two shots on target was joint-top for the Red Devils.

Pogba is among The Scout's four Differentials ahead of Thursday 26 December's 11:30 GMT deadline.

Paul Pogba (MUN) £8.4m
3.3 per cent ownership

Pogba is pushing for a start at home against Newcastle United.

He has a fine record against the Magpies, with one goal and two assists from his two home meetings.

Pogba's influence on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side is clear. In only three home appearances this term, his eight key passes are just four fewer than team-mate and top creator Andreas Pereira (£5.0m).

His guile could be a key difference as the Red Devils look to bounce back from their Vicarage Road loss.

Wesley (AVL) £5.7m
1.7 per cent ownership

A home encounter with Norwich City could help the Aston Villa forward return to form.

Wesley scored twice and provided an assist when the teams met in Gameweek 8, producing a personal season-high total of 15 points in Villa's 5-1 victory.

The Brazilian is also joint-top with team-mate Jack Grealish (£6.3m) for shots in the penalty area in the last four Gameweeks, with six.

Wesley will look to capitalise further against a Norwich side who have conceded 37 goals this term, the league's joint-worst record with Southampton.

Christian Benteke (CRY) £5.7m
0.6 per cent ownership

The Crystal Palace striker has been a major goal threat since returning to the starting XI in Gameweek 17.

Along with Teemu Pukki (£6.6m) of Norwich and Chelsea's Tammy Abraham (£7.9m), Benteke is joint-top among forwards with seven shots inside the box in the last two Gameweeks.

And his aerial threat looks set to pose problems for West Ham United at Selhurst Park.

Manuel Pellegrini's Hammers have conceded 13 headed shots in their last four matches, more than any other side.

Enda Stevens (SHU) £5.1m
2.7 per cent ownership

Sheffield United's wing-back has been a big success at both ends of the pitch.

Stevens has one goal, two clean sheets and 20 FPL points in the last three Gameweeks.

That form has propelled him to joint-fifth among defenders and level with Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) on 74 points.

The Blades next face a Watford side who struggle on the road. The Hornets have netted just five times on their travels, the joint-lowest in the division.

Remember to select your Gameweek 19 team before the deadline of 11:30 GMT on Thursday 26 December.
